1970s / Sanford Arms - Sitcom Flop
Here is the opening sequence to one of the most pointless sitcoms ever attempted: Sanford Arms. The popular NBC sitcom Sanford and Son had ended in September 1977 after a run of five-and-a-half years. Star Redd Foxx (who played Fred Sanford) had left NBC to do a variety show for ABC. Demond Wilson (Lamont Sanford) was supposed to continue on as the star of Sanford Arms. However NBC balked at paying his demands for more money for being the star of the show, so Wilson bailed out. Undaunted, NBC produced the show using secondary characters from Sanford and Son. The first episode explained that Fred and Lamont had moved to Arizona for Fred's health. Their old house plus the place next door had been bought by Phil Wheeler. Wheeler would use the Sanford house as his business office and home while the next-door property would be converted into a rooming house christened Sanford Arms. The public was utterly uninterested. Sanford Arms debuted on September 16, 1977 and aired just four times (although eight total episodes were made). Atrocious ratings caused NBC to abruptly axed the show following the October 13 broadcast.
